The temperature over the weekend still called for cold weather clothes, so here I am wearing a scarf (last seen here) and it’s almost April. Sigh. It’s supposed to be warmer any day now, right? Spring weather can’t get here soon enough.
I wore this skirt in a post in August but opted to go with a heel this time instead of a flat. I also thought the solid skirt and top might be a great canvas for some more fun pattern mixing. The leopard print pump (one of my favorites) and the plaid scarf work great together because of the similar color palette.

Just when I thought spring weather was here to say, the temperature dropped again after a lovely day yesterday with temperatures in the 70s. At least I have this cute dress for a post today, which almost makes me OK with the weather.
I am so often cold, especially when I’m in the office, and I always have a sweater or jacket with me to throw on over whatever I’m wearing. Rather than layering multiple items on top of this dress, I thought I’d layer a button-up shirt under it. It still adds a pop of color without covering up all the cute stripes, and I can layer a jacket on top too if I’m still cold (which I am today and in these pictures … sigh).
Have a great weekend!

I’m departing a bit from my regular fashion-related posts to do something on home style. Handsome Hubby and I moved into a new apartment last August, and our new place has less storage in the kitchen than our last place. The result is that we have a pile of kitchen stuff in our dining room that has nowhere to go. I’ve been on the hunt for several months for a buffet or sideboard where we can store this extra stuff, but I haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for. (Well, I’ve actually found several options that I love, but they’re all ridiculously expensive, so … the hunt continues.)
As I’ve been searching, I’ve been drawn to mid-century and mid-century modern pieces. I love the clean lines and the vintage/retro feel that they have. The mid-century pieces from West Elm are my favorite, and I would replace every piece of furniture we own with the West Elm pieces if I could afford it. Alas, I can’t, so I’m still searching for something that’s just right for our space and that doesn’t break the bank. Here are some of the pieces I’m loving right now.
